Your Trustee is there to manage the Trust Deed, distribute payments, and deal with your creditors’ correspondence.
All essential household bills must be maintained, such as a mortgage, rent, Etc.
While you are in a Protected Trust Deed, you must keep your Trustee up to date with any changes, including house moves or changes to income & expenditures.
